Week 1 – Belvedere Palace

Well here we go again, another 53 weeks lie ahead of us.

If anything this next period will be more difficult than the first, if only because doing something again is often more difficult than setting out to do something the first time.

They say you should start as you mean to go on, so at the last minute on the Sunday afternoon (before the light faded), I walked up to the Belvedere Palace to shoot this.

I do hope you like it!

Week 27 – The Saale

After a short weekend break in the south of the country, this week’s post is centred around the river Saale.

As we have now reached halfway on the photographic journey through the year 2011, this week’s entry is interactive. All those entering the poll (see below) have the chance to become the lucky winner of a once in a lifetime prize.

So here goes:

The first two were taken directly on the banks of the Saale River in Hirschberg (Thuringia). This Bench is the longest to be cut from one log (according to the Guinness Book of Records), and seats approximately 97 people depending on which nationality you are.
